We were there when this hotel just opened. I think it was in late 2004. It was really great holiday. Everything was just amazing. The hotel is situated on the best beach, with wooden bungalows, everything was so nice, owners were so friendly, food was delicious, bungalow was clean and unique, and since we were first guest we got really...

I wish I could give a glowing review of this hotel. We arrived with high expectations having read encouraging reviews online. It's true that the Tainos is an exceptional property set in a postcard perfect setting with Indonesian-style cottages tucked away amidst palm trees and tropical vegetation. However, the hotel is currently undergoing a change in management and while I... More

My Partner and I chose Tainos Cottages for our honeymoon because we had a read an article about the hotel in The New York Times. We chose Guadeloupe because we wanted a distinctly French Caribbean Experience. We spent the first part of our honeymoon at La Toubana Spa and Resort in Saint Anne. It was a bit hard to adjust...

Although the site is unique, hence the double price of competitors (300 € per night). But the service and conveniences are cery low . * Hygiene is bad : - Impossible to take a shower during all the week : no hot water and quite no cold water! - Waste water flowed through the floor and was not connected to...

These cottages are right on the best beach of Basse-terre; The grande anse. The cottages are a bit rustic, in that they don't have screens, they are a bit dark but they are comfortably furnished and very clean. There are only 7 cottages and each is a bit different. This is a very unique spot. Staying at Tainos is like... More

On one of the best beaches on the island, Tainos Cottages offers you the best location and access to Grand Anse beach. Your cottage comes furnished with a mini fridge, a nicely appointed wardrobe, and a shower stall with plenty of hot water and steady flow. Daily maid service is also included, as well as a lovely breakfast. We spent... More

Large roomy cottages cooled by island breezes, no need for air conditioning, t.v. or phones. Delicious breakfast is served overlooking the sea and Grande Anse beach. The Tainos Cottages is a wonderful spot to get away for a refreshing break.

Largely on the strength of this article in the NY Times, http://travel.nytimes.com/2006/02/05/travel/05guadeloupe.html , my husband and I recently selected Tainos Cottages for our visit to Guadeloupe and we were thrilled with the choice. If you are looking for many dining options, beach activities and crowds found in large resorts, this is not your place. Tainos Cottages is a relatively quiet... More

We just spent a wonderful three days and two nights at Taino's. What a spectacular property with a small number of great cottages!. With beautiful views of Grande Anse beach that's only a 10 second walk away, you can't beat the location. The grounds are beautiful and there are great sunsets from the pool area. Check out the cool orange... More

If your idea of a vacation is an all-inclusive-type property providing countless activities (beach volleyball, water aerobics, fun contests, etc.); loads of water-sports (Seadoos*, waterskiing, bananaboats, parasailing); a vast choice of restaurants offering various international cuisine; amenities such as swimming pool(s) with swim-up bar, jacuzzi*, a gym, children's play area, beach loungers under palapas/parasols,in-room safe and telephone, satellite TV; night-time...
